I lasted a week.

I doubt the onions will bulb, but they’ll green.

I doubt the Spinach will cover, but it’ll sprout.

I doubt the radish will reach giant sizes, but they’ll lend pops of pink to the world for a short bright while.

The light moves up as the sun goes down.

A picnic on blankets and chairs. His wrinkled cheeks under his chubby ones. Her hair cascading down her growing back. My toes, tiny, covered in dirt and red polish. His toes, tiny, covered in purple sparkle shine. We eat snow peas from ten feet away and listen to the bees on the broccoli and radish.

I don’t joke when I show my garden to others, introducing it as My Happy Place.
